From the You Can’t Make it Up Department:
A burglar broke into the home of an 82 year old man in Heathmont, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, back in January, 2008. The offender got away after pushing aside the homeowner and stealing his grandson’s bike.
Little did the crook know that the man he brushed aside was Bill “Weg” Green, a well known sports caricaturist. When police arrived, he drew a caricature of his intruder. 15 minutes later the burglar was picked up for an unrelated crime but quickly identified as the man who had broken into Green’s home thanks to what police said was a “fantastic” likeness in the caricature.
It just goes to show you… don’t mess with caricaturists.
That reminds me of this hilarious video I linked to many moons ago:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYJHKyoFC84
